Re: SUSPENSION (VDubbinMK2GTI)

I don't know too much about wheels but it depends on the size of the wheel, if you get 17 or 18's you aren't going to lower your car as much as if you had 15's. With my 15's I am going to lower the car about 1 & 1/2 inches using H&R sports. Not much help sorry.

need a little more info, what width of wheel and tire are you running?

*Sorry Cramer I forgot to include that info
it`s 16X7.5
Oh and also I want to use Bilsteins shocks/struts, So what`s the best springs to match that. I need the right drop so it won`t rub.

Re: SUSPENSION (djrado)

You're going to need race springs to keep it from rubbing, and even then it will probably rub a little over large road imperfections. I recommend H+R Race springs, as they have the highest spring rate of any race springs available. They will drop your car about 1.5"
Like the post above said, realistically you'll need to pull the fenders to eliminate rubbing completely.
Oh, and the widest tire you'll be able to run is a 205. Stick with a 205/45-16 and they'll tuck inward a bit.

Re: SUSPENSION (djrado)

yes, along with race springs, i'd get Koni shocks and run them pretty stiff.. this will also limit the rubbing. But with a 20et on the rears, you're going to need to either grind or roll the rear arches (i'm running et28 on 7.5" wheel on mine with the arches ground down and needed quite a bit of cutting).. you may get away from doing the fronts.
